At Armistice Day Rally

Neutrality Poll
For Thursday

House Action On Senate
Amendments Requested
By SpeakerRayburn
England, U.S. Plan
Move In Fra East
WASHINGTON, Nov. 8--(P)-Ad-
ministration leaders decided today to
press for a direct final House vote on
the Senate's amendements to the
neutrality bill not later than next
SpeakertRayburn said after a con-
ference with majority leader McCor-
mack of Massachusetts that this pro-
cedure would get the legislation to
President Roosevelt "much quicker"
than would turning the House and
Senate bills over to- a joint committee
for compromise.
Two Methods
When Senate gnd House pass re-
lated but differing legislation, there
are two methods for adjusting the
1. One chamber must accept the
other's version, or
2. A committee of Senators and
House members works out a compro-
mise which must be submitted to both
chambers for final approval.
In the present case, the House roll-
ed up a 259 to 138 vote on Oct. 17
for repeal of the Neutrality Act's pro-
hibition against arming of merchant
ships. This measure then went to the
Senate which last night passed by a
vote of 50 to 37 an amended bill
which also would permit United
States merchant ships to enter com-
bat zones and belligerent ports.
Announce Decision '
Announcing the decision to ask the
House to accept the Senate bill in-
stead of seeking to compromise, Ray-
burn said:
"We think we have the votes to
pass it."
But many Republicans said the
vote might be extremely close.
Representatives Jonkman (Rep.-
Mich. and Muhdt (Rep.-S.D.), for
instance, said that many of the mem-
bers who helped roll up the 121-
majority on the ship arming proposal
had committed themselves at that
time to vote for no other amendment.

Florida Students Say He's
An 'Unwelcome Guest'
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Nov. 8-(P)

-Governor Eugene Talmadge of
Georgia, here for theannual Georgia-
Florida football game, was advised
today by a group of Florida students
that he was an "unwelcome guest"
because of recent changes -he made in
the Georgia university system.
A revamped Board of Regentspre-
cently dismissed several educators
at insistence of the governor. Two
of the men, Walter D. Cocking and

war" against Hitler are scheduled to
address the Armistice Day Rally in
Rackham Auditorium at 8 p.m. Tues-
Prof. Preston Slosson of the his-
tory department and Prof. Bryan
Rust of Wayne University will stress
at the rally, not only their conten-
tion that we should "Win the War,"
but also that it is equally necessary
for us to "Win the Peace." '
Examining these two postulates
from the viewpoint of the student,
Don O'Connor, '42, will emphasize
the importance of youth's support-
ing the defeat-Hitler program. As
treasurer of the Student Defendes
of Democracy, which is sponsoring
the rally, O'Connor has been active in
anti-fascist work on the campus.
Immediately preceding the rally
the University Band, under the direc-
tion of William D. Revelli, will march

Conference Of Teachers
Recommends Adoption
Of New Tenure Plan
Dr. Clarence S. Yoakum, dean of
the Graduate School, welcomed near-
ly 100 university and collegeprofes-
sors yesterday morning at the re-
gional conference of the American
Association of University Professors
held at the Union.
The morning session, presided over
by Prof. C. D. Thorpe, president of
the Universityof Michigan Chapter,
opened with an address by Prof. M.
M. Knappen, of Michigan State Col-
lege, who spoke on the seven-year
tenure plan for instructors. This plan
was recommended by the Association
in a vote taken last year.
Professor Henry Owens, of Michi-
gan State Normal College, presented
some of the disadvantages of the
plan and led a discussion concerning
its merits and drawbacks.
Prof. Frederick S. Deibler, of
Northwestern University, president of
the Association,- spoke at the lunch-
eon on the Association's principles,
especially as applied to the problems
of tenure and freedom of speech,
demhonstrating the close relationship
between the two. The Association, he
said, is interested in standards of
tenure and in procedural questions,
rather than in individual cases.

and expects to be called to the service
in the near future.
For years he has been working
for international peace, but now feels
that the isolationists in this country
have made peace impossible until the
Nazis are defeated.
Recognized as a public speaker of1
ability, he accepted a special invita-

"Since the Red Cross is entirely
supported by conti'ibutions and mem-
bership dues," Miss Luckham de-
clared, "University women have an
excellent opportunity to aid its ac-
tivities. Any contributions, of any
amount, will be taken in addition to
full membership fees."
Chartered by the United States
Congress as an intermediary between
civilians and the armed forces, the
Red Cross has been giving courses in
home nursing, first-aid, and motor
mechanics to University coeds and
women throughout the country.
. According to Miss Luckham, cam-1
pus organizations will work for a $700
contribution this year, half again the
amount collected in 1940. A com-
plete list of University women work-
ers in the drive will be published in
Tuesday's Daily.l

committee but with the same ulti-
mate purpose, the West Quadrangle's

RAF planes roared over the Straits of

Patrol Extension Seen
In Iceland Base Move
WASHINGTON, Nov. 8-(P)--Des-
ignation of Iceland as a full-fledged
naval operating base stirred conjec-
ture tonight that extension of Amer-
ican naval patrols and convoy escorts
all the way to Britain was imminent.
Secretary Knox assigned Rear Ad-
miral James L. Kauffman, 54-'year-
old veteran of World War convoy bat-
tles against submarines, to command
of the Iceland base.
The announcement followed by a
day the Senate's vote to permit Amer-
ican flag vessels to go into belligerent,
meaning especially British, ,ports.
While the house has yet to act, au-
thorities forecast that if cargo ves-
sels are permitted to make the whole
trip to England they will travel routes
protected by American warships.
Should the Atlantic fleet add this
job to its present assignment of
guarding the sea lanes between Amer-
ica and Iceland, the island outpost
would become the scene of even more
intense military and naval operations
than it has experienced since Ameri-
can forces moved in four months ago.
Such intensive development of the
place had not previously been indi-
cated, but the establishment of a
naval operating base there, within
itself an administrative step, showed
that numerous naval activities both
ashore and afloat had been or were
being set up.
There will be a egeneral meeting
of the 'Ensian editorial staff at
4:15 p.m. tomorrow in the 'Ensian
office. All eligible sophomores are
urged to attend.

Germans Will Not Fire
On U.S. Ships Unless
Attacked, Nazi States
Russia Is Reported
(By The Associated Pressy
Adolf Hitler last night dared Bri-
tain to attempt an invasion of the
European Continent, and in the same
address celebrating the beer hall
putsch of 1923, declared he ' had
ordered all German ship con mand-
ers not to fire on American vessels
unless they were first attacked1
As his armies were pictured in the
new role of fighting doggedly on the
defensive, -by Russian and Britih
sources, Hitler challengednBritainto
attempt an invasion in the west say-
ing his ,plans were ready to meet
them. Whether they try an offensive
on Norway, the German coast, Hol-
land, Belgium or, France, he told
his party followers, "We can only say:
'Step up, you will leave again faster
than you came."
Troops Nearing Leningrad
In the same address, Hitler re-
vealed that his troops are within 6%
miles of Leningrad, that the Soviets
had lost between 8,000,0OO and ;10,-
000,000 casualties and that the Ger-
mans had captured or destroyed Is,-
000 planes, more than 22,000 tanks
and more than 27,000 guns.
Announcing that German U-boats
would not attack American vessels,
Hitler added that any German otfi-
cer who does not defend himself when
attacked will be court-martialed, and
repeated., his warning that any ships
carrying aid to the enemy would be
torpedoed wherever they are found.
Russian prisoners total 3,60,0,
he saidand "when German military
authority has counted something,
then it is correct."
"The entire industry of the world,
including our German, could only
slowly replace this'material," he add-
ed. "The industry of our democ-
racies in any case can not replace it
in the next years."
Dislikes 'Britzkrieg'
Hitler told whi followers that he
disliked and never used the term
"blitzkrieg," but that if such a word'
could be applied, it would certainly
be with respect to the Russian cam-
"Never was a great empire smashed
and destroyed In so short a time as
was Russia this time," he said.
He spoke in the Munich beer cellar
where in 1923 the Nazi Party ixet one
of its few reverses-the putsch whose
anniversary he commemorated.r,'
Hitler strode unexpectedly into the
Munich hall after coming secretly
(rom the eastern front. It was here,
two yeafs ago, that a bonb eploded
11 minutes after Hitler and his aides
left a similar celebration.
This time, he proclaimed the
"right of every German ship to de-
?end itself when attacked" and.
scornfully dismissed American at-
;empts "to create dreams of fear in
Germany through threats and plans
for, gigantic armament."
But his speeth came as the Rus-
;ians claimed the 37day-old Nazi
Irive on Moscow hadf been all but
brown into reverse.
Germans Struggling
Soviet General Rokos"ovsky, in a
Moscow radio broadcast, said the
Germans were now struggling to
hold their .lines against Red Army
attacks "on many sectors of the
German flame-throwers were re-
sorted widely in action, darting long
}ongues of fire over the snow-covered
battlefields in attempts to stop the
advance of giant Soviet tanks.
'Russian front-line dispatches re-.
ported Gen. Gregory K. Zhukov's Red
armies were counter-attacking heav--
ily in four main sectors-at Kalinin,

95 miles northwest of Moscow; Volo-
kolamsk, 65 miles northwest of Mos-
cow; Mozhaisk, 57 miles west; and
somewhere on the left flank, presum-
ably at Maloyaroslavets, 65 miles
southwest of the capital.

Jerusalem. For they talked for an

Beginning work last January, she
penetrated 13 countries in order to

Part of her amazing ability to pre-

reactions faster.
